Never Delete Your Blog

AllahPundit did, and now someone took over his address and turned it into a porn/mail-order bride site.

Boston Irish did too, and they did the same. An porn link is stuck inside an old story about Christopher Hitchens, without warning that it's porn (except if you know that "Rita Faltoyano" is a porn actress), and the links in the sidebar just lead to porn, too.

Hey, if you've built up some amount of web-presence, there's no real reason to delete your blog or give up your address. If there's stuff on your blog you've decided you no longer want public, just go through the thing and put all those posts into draft so they're not part of the blog anymore. (They'll still be somewhere out there in cached form, of course, but deleting your blog won't get rid of cached pages, either).

Even if you've decided your blog might hurt you professionally or personally... well, your old blog now being a mail-order bride site isn't going to help you at your Judiciary Committee hearings, either. Sure, Ted Kennedy will vote for you, but others might not be so understanding.

Just saying. Who knows, in two years you might want to start blogging again. Or maybe you could just actually sell your domain to a porn site-- maybe that's the only real way to get crazy blog-money.

Boston Irish is now at finally posting at a "Like a viking" address, by the way. And he's still not a fan of John Kerry's.

PS, don't click on any of the links on the porn version of Boston Irish, unless you want your computer hijacked for twenty minutes by never ending porn pop-ups that are somehow invulnerable to pop-up blockers. They just seem to take over open windows on your computer.
